'Zero to Hero'

Part of the Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe's 'Zero to Hero' advertising campaign accompanying 'Operation Sunrise'.

 

Inflation is now at over 1000%, meaning that people have to carry huge bundles of notes to do the most basic shopping.

The latest measure (Operation Sunrise) the RBZ has taken is to literally drop three zero's, and print new bearer cheques (we don't have real money in Zimbabwe) with a lower denomination.

 

This image accompanies a story on the Sokwanele website entitled "Welcome to a new sunrise in Zimbabwe": or Murambatsvina Part 2". We also have a blog (This is Zimbabwe), which features smaller day to day pieces about life in Zimbabwe.
